Mysterious Stranger is an NPC that you meet from the very start of your Sea of Thieves journey. There is not much known about the Mysterious Stranger and him not talking to you does not help as well. In this Sea of Thieves guide, we will walk you through everything you need to know about the Mysterious Stranger in the game and what he wants.


Sea of Thieves Mysterious Stranger

To find the Mysterious Stranger in the game, you need to go to your tavern and look to the left-hand side of the tavern keeper. There you will find the man. However, if you try to approach him and talk, you will be told that you need more reputation levels with different companies in the game. These in-game companies are Merchant Alliance, the Order of Souls, and the Gold Hoarders.

Those of you who just bought the game and have yet to increase your reputation levels, the Mysterious Stranger is from Athena’s Fortune who accepts Athena’s Fortune Treasure for gold as well as reputation. If you manage to reach Grade V Emissary with Athena’s Fortune, you should also be able to acquire Athena’s Fortune Emissary Quest.

Therefore, those of you who are interested in joining the fabled Athena’s Fortune Trading Company, you need to increase your reputation with the Mysterious Stranger, acquire the Shanty of Legends, and find your way to Athena’s Fortune Hideout.


In addition to this, it is through the Mysterious Stranger that you are able to get the Onboarding Voyage and The Shroudbreaker Tall Tale. Hopefully, this guide helped you understand a little more about the Mysterious Stranger.
